    Blitz is the German word for flash.

    Never heard of blitz printing. I've heard of a weakside blitz. But I have never heard this term before.
    Thank you.

    Blitz is a shortened version of the German word "blitzen" meaning lightning. hence blitzkrieg (lightning war)

    I suppose it could be when you have a 24-pack of beer in the darkroom fridge (or would that be blitzed printing?).
    If you then try to knock out a backlog it could be blitzed blitzing (wasn't that a cartoon character or something?).
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    it probably has to do with cranking out print after print after print like a human mini-lab --- lightning fast printing

    Mass production of prints can be achieved by replacing the enlarger light source with a flash unit and automating the process of paper feeding. As far as I know, this was done in the past for trade shows where hundreds of prints had to be made to hand out to potential customers.

    If dodging and burning was required... Well, that was a job for Clark Kent.

    I was kinda leaning toward the get there quick blitz. Ie. Mass printing.

    I've done this in postcard exchanges. Get it right. Then expose all the paper and a couple spare just in case. That goes quicker as you get into a rythym. Then soup all the prints in succession, again, another good tempo found there as well.
    Thank you.
